Wore this without the straps (LOVE when straps are removable) and had so many compliments at the beach. No adjusting and it was very flattering on, didn’t have to worry about a wardrobe malfunction in the waves and if the front tie comes undone it doesn’t matter, it’s only decorative. Thought it was great that there was a place for inserts so that you don’t have show through. I am 5’2”, 108 lbs, and got an XS. I want to see how the elastic will do long term but right now it is a big hit.
I really wanted a matching top to go with the isla high waisted bottoms. All the others were not a good style on me so I went with this bandeau. It's honestly not the best style on me either, but the best of the options in this print! I am a 36b and got a medium. I hope it stretches a tiny bit, because it keeps squishing into my skin a tiny bit and not staying quite where I want it, but I know if I sized up the large would be way too big in the cups. I guess I'll try stretching it a bit and hope it stays better. It's adorable though and Albion quality, so if you are one where bandeaus are a good style then you'd probably love this one!
I have three Albion swim suits and love them all! So stylish, comfortable, supportive, hugs in all the right places. The Simone Bandeau is no exception. Great fit - don't have to worry about my toddler pulling down my top - with or without straps. Pairs great with high waisted bottoms. Love the vibrant colors and design. Fits true to size.
This top is so cute! I like that the bandeau style prevents tan lines, but still has the option for straps if I plan on being more active. I am smaller chested, and this style flatters my figure. I also purchased the matching midi bottoms, which I love! These pieces are obviously high quality, and I am hoping for years of use rather than getting a cheap new suit every year.
So cute! Albion swimwear never dissapoints!
This top is so cute!! I love the bandeau look, but don’t always wear them because I need more support. HOWEVER, this suit has adjustable straps so you can wear it with or without them. I love it with the straps and it provides the support I need. YAY! You can’t go wrong with this suit or this print. Love the quality of the suit.
Love - great fit and quality.
